Leaving San Juanico we decided to explore the west side of Isla Carmen. Great decision. Carmen is one of the few islands in the Sea of Cortez that are privately owned. Rumor has it that the island is owned by Mexico's ex president from the early nineties who gave Carlos Slim the Telmex cell phone concession, thereby proving it's who you know. Bahia Salinas was once a salt mining operation and exploring what is left of the village you can still find the original payroll safe in the main office building, but the salt ponds were the real prize here.
